Repsol produces airplane biofuel for the first time in Spain
Press Release03/08/2020 17:50
Repsol produced the Spanish market's first batch of biojet at its Puertollano Industrial Complex, becoming the pioneering company in the manufacturing of this sustainable aviation fuel in Spain.
The first batch consists of 7,000 tons of aviation fuel with a bio-component. This will prevent 440 tons of CO2 emissions from being released into the atmosphere, which is equal to 40 Madrid-Barcelona flights.
The biojet produced passed the demanding tests required for this type of product, and its production will be extended to other Repsol facilities across Spain. The Company will also develop alternatives aimed at obtaining airplane fuel derived from waste.
With this new decarbonization initiative, Repsol is advancing towards achieving its commitment to become a net zero emissions company by 2050.
